card once and then a second time using a small device. watch again from the register to the skimmer. it looks like this. small enough to fit in a thieve's pocket and could even be installed at gas station pumps. police say this criminal couple was caught on camera desperately searching for their skimming device. the possibility solution, that chip. the electronic transactions association tells us it can't be duplicated by criminals like magnetic strips creating unique codes for every purchase. no more swiping. you put your card in and keep it there till the code is captured. >> when you have a chip card and go to a reader, you're no longer using the magnetic stripe. you're insirting your card and a one-time code is used to authorize the transaction. so your credit card information is no longer shared. >> now starting october 1st, the trade association says if businesses downtown have technology in place to read that
chip, they will be entirely liable for any fraud. but many of us don't even have a chip on our cards yet. so what do you do? >> if consumers don't receive their cards by october 1st, merchants cannot refuse your payment. it's your bank's responsibility to send you an issue you a new card. >> but the chip alone won't make your card entirely safe. thieves can still copy credit card numbers and use those numbers on line. gio benitez, abc news, new york. one of the biggest fears i've always had is skimming especially at gatt stations. apparently they have another two years to make the switch. >> it's so easy. we've done many stories on this and how easy crooks can do this sort of stuff. it's good to see the the technology is finally catching up in this country. a family goes an extra mile. 13,000 of them to see the pope. >> the mix is up next.
